"Statsbygg wishes to encourage innovative and experimental studies of architecture among future generations of architects. The Student Award will be handed out to one or more student projects at the master level for particularly innovative and well executed project work performed in accordance with state guidelines within the field of architecture. In the evaluation, emphasis is placed on clarity in quality and form, in terms of identity, practical usefulness and aesthetic value." Statsbygg has therefore agreed with BAS for the distribution of such a student award. BAS has decided that this should be done in relation to the diploma projects, and the censors at the exam will nominate three diploma projects that are submitted to a jury in Statsbygg. Now the winner is chosen, and the award will be given out at BAS on Wednesday 27. March at 1430. Read more.

The other architecture schools in Norway have the same arrangement, and this is also done within the fields of landscape architecture and interior architecture.

2012 was the first year that BAS participated on this, and Statsbygg will come to BAS on Wednesday 27. March  to announce the winner for 2018, which will receive a check of NOK 20.000,-. 

There will be an event in the Large Auditorium at 1430 hrs. and we wish students and teachers welcome. The winning-project will be presented after announcement by Statsbygg. 

The three projects that were competing for the award were: 

Karla Lesley Kjellsdotter Jaeger: "THE REST IS NOISE Enlightening Nygård through Movement And sound"

Turid Skåden: "Ghost - Investigating industrial ghosts, their spatial impact on the surroundings and potential productive future"

Victoria Helene Storemyr: "we have moved -a way of seeing the city, finding stories through the landscape of former places in the inner city of (the small coastal town) Arendal"
